Our Best Answer - Is there a safety escort program?

Safety Escorts

The CSO Escort Program is a free service provided to all students, faculty and community members during the evening and early morning hours. The objective of the escort service is to provide a safer mode of transportation through campus and Isla Vista. The escort service is based on the "buddy" system which is to simply provide another person to travel with you to your destination.

The CSO Escort Service can be used by simply calling the Police Dispatch through the Escort Phone Line at (805) 893-2000.
